A rhyming tribute to a budding young artist.

Patrick McDonnell is the creator of the Mutts comic strip, which recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. He has illustrated for the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Reader's Digest, Time, Parents, and other journals, done CD covers for the Greatest Hit classical music series, and created a license plate for his home state of New Jersey. Hailed as "the next Charles Schulz," Patrick sits on the board of directors of the Humane Society of the United States, and has won numerous awards for both Mutts and his animal welfare work. He is the co-author of Krazy Kat: The Comic Art of George Herriman and also contributed a story to Little Lit: It Was a Dark and Silly Night, edited by Art Spiegelman and Fran├žoise Mouly (HarperCollins, 2003).

  • "Patrick McDonnell's Mutts is up there with Peanuts, Pogo, Krazy Kat, and Calvin and Hobbes - cartoons that are smart and funny, brilliantly drawn, and full of heart."
    -Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons

    "To me, Mutts is exactly what a comic strip should be. It is one of the best comic strips of all time."
    -Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts

    "Patrick McDonnell possesses an elegance of line and narrative that both transcends and defines his medium. His artistry is in his Zen-like clarity, his simple direct address, and his unique understanding of the essential animal/human continuum. When one experiences Mutts, one experiences genius."
    -Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones
